India Tax Saving Challenge 2013 raised over Rs. 1 crore!

The India Tax Saving Challenge 2013 ended on 14th March raising a phenomenal Rs. 1.37 crores. This is the first time this event has crossed the 1 crore mark and the credit goes to all the NGOs who put their best foot forward to raise funds for their cause.

When the dust settled, Parivaar Education Society emerged as the clear winner raising Rs. 42 lacs, followed by Rural Health Care Foundation with Rs. 21 lacs and Psycho Educational Society with Rs. 14 lacs.

Make a difference by choosing ECS

If you are a ICICI Prudential Life Insurance policy holder, here is another good reason to pay your premiums through Electronic Clearance Service (ECS) or Online Credit Card Standing Instructions (SI).

For every successful ECS or SI registration ICICI Prudential Life Insurance will donate Rs. 100 to GiveIndia towards development of underprivileged children. Spread the word and help underpriviledged children.

Get in touch with us for an acknowledgement of your 35AC donation, which can be used for tax purposes.
